It is an Egyptian mosque in Islamic Cairo. Al-Mu'izz li-Din Allah of the Fatimid dynasty commissioned its construction for the newly established capital city in 970. Its name is usually thought to derive from az-Zahrāʾ (meaning "the shining one"), a title given to Fatimah. It was the first mosque established in Cairo, a city that has since gained the nickname "the City of a Thousand Minarets".

Obverse lettering: Central Bank of Egypt | Fifty Piastres

Reverse: The upper part of the statue of Ramses II, backed by a vertical multi-coloured ornamental band and a collection of lotus flowers and the sun boat.
